wian joins us now live with a report. >> reporter: that massive wildfire just behind me in the angeles national forest is spreading rapidly. at this point, firefighters aren't sure how to get it under control. the wildfire choking most of southern california with smoke is not the typical blaze. this fire is being fueled by brush that hasn't burned in years. they've named it the station fire. it's unusually unpredictable and creating its own wind patterns, so firefighters are unable to attack the flames and instead are using defensive tactics. >> we're waiting for the fire to burn to places where we can control it. the fire is able to move several miles in just a few hours, the same terrain would take you a day to move through it and this fire can move through it in two hours. so we can't put our people on the ground in a situation where they can be easily overrun by the fire. >> reporter: two firefighters were killed over the weekend. even so, some residents ignored evacuation notices. >> something you can't even describe, being stuck in a house with the flames and laying on the floor

and the motorcades lined its way to boston. our own john king joins us from the kennedy presidential library. john, describe the scene. what is it like there tonight? >> it's a fascinating mix, lisa. inside you can see the senator's wife, the widow, still in there grieving. most are from massachusetts but some from overseas as they pass by the casket, the senator edward kennedy, it was more of a celebration. people are telling stories and caroline kennedy, bobby kennedy, members of the shriver family. and as you mentioned, the family came here later at 5:00 eastern time. he was brought inside by a military honor guard. the family had time to pray and reflect inside and now we're told more than 1600 members of the public have passed by. there are more than 12,000 people, we are told, in the line outside. there are supposed to be 12 hours of viewing over two days but the family says they will keep it opened as long as there are people waiting in line. now as we have two days of tribute, then the funeral mass on sunday, there is speculation, of course, as to what comes next for the state of massachus
of information out there and it should be used. >> we're going to continue to shed light on all of this and look forward to your doing so tomorrow evening. thank you very much. kitty pilgrim. >>> tonight we're looking at the personal income tax rates in those countries with those health care systems, public health care systems that we have examined. five of those six countries have a higher income tax rate than we have in this country. the maximum personal income tax rate in the united states currently is 35%. canada's tax rate is actually below ours, 29%. in france, the rate is 40%. the united kingdom tax rate reaching a maximum of 40%. the highest tax rate is in germany, is in germany, is 45%. and the netherlands income tax rate is 52%. and in den mamark, the tax rate there, 59%. we'll continue our look at health care systems of other country, public health care systems. tomorrow we examine the state of health care in switzerland. the health care debate in this country enflaming passions of both sides, of course. that divide can clearly be seen at these town hall meetings all across the countr

of so-called health care reform or overhaul, and aarp spokesman tells us they aren't surprised. he said it's not uncommon for large numbers of their members to quit when the organization takes a position on a controversial issue. the aarp, however, has not officially taken a position, but does support so-called health care reform. aarp will be with us here tomorrow to join in a face-off debate on proposed health care plans. >>> democrats today continuing their attacks on those who express opposition to the president's plans. congressman jerry nadler blasted americans who go to town hall meetings to air their viewses on the issues. he told the "huffing post," it is fascist, it is a fascist tactic. it's exactly what they did in weimar, germany, it is a fascist tactic not to disagree with you, or to say you are an idiot or whatever, but to shut you up." nadler's office says the congress wasn't calling the protesters fascists, he met their tactics were fascists. >>> co-ops are non-profit member-run groups usually on the local level. critics say the co-op isn't a practical option on the nati
shows 23% strongly favor obama's health plan while 33% strongly oppose. >> they are using their displeasure with the aspects of this plan to kind of express their misgivings about the obama administration and what they see as a big government agenda being driven by the obama administration. >> and the people are speaking out, not only at town hall meetings but also through the internet. the house of representatives website e-mail system has been so jammed, overloaded with those constituent's e-mails. lou? >> thank you very much, lisa. lisa sylvester from washington. much more on the show down over health care. we'll have a special report and that the president plan as he a asserts. and do americans have a moral right to health care and does the federal government have a moral responsibility to provide it? >>> also, a report on the health care system of japan. stay with us. to stay on top of my game after 50, i switched to a complete multivitamin with more. only one a day men's 50+ advantage... has gingko for memory and concentration. plus support for heart health. that's a
around but that is the number that they are using right now. we heard what summers and geithner said over the weekend. the white house saying nothing has changed. >> nothing has changed? it sounds like something is changing. we just don't know what. >> reporter: exactly, something is going on behind the scenes. perhaps we don't have all the answers. >> i know one thing, you will get them. >> reporter: i will try. >> thanks. dan lothian from the white house. >>> as dan just reported, the president has repeatedly declare he has in no plans to raise taxes on middle-class americans. here's one example of his rhetoric from a campaign event in do every, new hampshire, last september. >> and i can make a firm pledge u , under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase, not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes. >> now, that was candidate obama. now, let's listen to what president obama was saying at a news conference just last month on july 22nd. president obama clearly recal bragt his language on the
of his stimulus plan. >> this morning, we received additional signs that the worst may be behind us. >> reporter: while 247,000 more people lost jobs in july, the president noted that's far better than what he inherited. >> we're losing jobs at less than half the rate we were when i took office. we've pulled the financial system back from the brink. while we've rescued our economy from catastrophe, we've also begun to build a new foundation for growth. >> reporter: republicans insist the stimulus may be working on the margins, but has not provided the jolt the president originally promised. >> you have to define "working." i mean, they've set the bar that says we're going to have the second grade depression and we didn't, so it has to be working. >> reporter: while the president acknowledged there's a long way to go, he struck a very optimistic tone. >> i am convinced we'll see a light at the end of the tunnel, but now we'll have to move forward with confidence and conviction to reach the promise of a new day. >> reporter: but greg thompson, a heavy machinery operator, suggests that
. >> a state department spokesman tonight told us, quote, the secretary's remarks stand on their own. >>> as we reported to you earlier, the president's poll numbers continue to fall. a new gallup poll shows the president's job ap vl pro has fallen to 53%. the latest rasmussen puts it even lower, 48%. one of those reasons for the declining poll numbers is rising concern about the president's agenda which is meeting strong resistance. a leading republican senator, senator charles grassley today reported people are scared by the president's health care plan and other policies. senator grassley making that comment at a town hall meeting in his home state of high wa. candy crowley reports from iowa. >> if it's okay with you, i'll get started. >> reporter: winterset, iowa, grassley holds his 72nd town hall meeting this year. and what a year. >> we're here at a time when i sense people are scared for our country. >> reporter: the stimulus plan, bailouts, government spending and now health care. grassley has been getting two, sometimes three times the crowds he's had in previous years. many people, so
